8 Months

This month has been very exciting!  This month you started to army crawl and say Dada.  You have made so much progress already Daddy and I are so proud of you and your new developments.  In just two weeks you have went from only going 2 feet and now you will crawl around your whole playroom and into the living room.  It won't be long before you are into everything.   This month you also were really sick for the first time.  I felt so helpless but thank goodness you are finally better.  Daddy and I love you so much!

Weight: 15.11 lbs - 5% percentile

Length: 27 inches - 25% percentile

Size: You are wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers

Feeding Schedule: You are eating 3 meals a day now. Barley and fruit for breakfast, veggies for lunch, and barley, veggies & fruit for dinner. You nurse 4-6 times a day.

Sleeping Schedule: You go to bed around 7pm give or take a couple minutes. You still wake up at night.  I am sure you will sleep through the night someday until then we will continue to have our mini dates in the middle of the night.  

Likes: Finger painting, playing with Max, Crawling, Playing Tag with Mommy & Daddy, Stroller Rides, Reading, Singing, Jumping in your Jumparoo, & Music Class.

Dislikes: Getting your nose or face wiped off. Getting your diaper changed.  You are starting to not like veggies, loud noises, your car seat.   

Events: We started the month off by ringing in the New Year.  You were asleep at midnight but Daddy and I snuck into your room and kissed you at midnight.  We also helped cousin Walker celebrate his 1st birthday.  We attended cousin Alivia & Kinsey's basketball game.  You liked all the people at the game but the buzzer upset you.  Last weekend we headed to Indy for a quick visit with Grandma & Grandpa Strobel.
